DL320G4: Cannot install HP 8 Internal Port SAS Host Bus Adapter

Greetings everyone,

I have purchased a DL320G4 together with the HP 8 Internal Port SAS Host Bus Adapter, as per Quickspecs. However, the adapter cannot be inserted into the riser board as neither of the slots accomodate the card(the adapter has a longer connector). What do I have to do? All I found relative to the adapter is the following note (quoting Quickspecs):
"NOTE: The HP 8 Internal Port SAS/SATA HBA with RAID (0,1) requires the purchase of the DL320 SAS/SATA Hot Plug Cable option kit (398307-B21)"
The cable still has to be shipped, but now I'm stuck not being able to install the adapter. Please help, I'm about to 'kernel panic'

Cheers,
Claudio
